's next for the candidate, and msnbc analyst michael steele and eugene robinson weigh s in. >>> later, more details in the trayvon martin case, his girlfriend describes their conversation just before he was killed, reverend al sharpton and charles blow from the new york times join me on that tonight. stay with us, we're right back. details later in this hour, we'll be right back. >>> welcome back to "the ed show." tonight was a big win for mitt romney in the state of illinois, and it raises questions about whether rick santorum has any real shot of being a factor in this race anymore. this was rick santorum tonight. >> all it boils down to one word, and that's what's at stake in this election, and it's right behind me on that banner and it's the word freedom. i was pleased to hear, before i came out, governor romney is now adapting that theme as his speech tonight. i am glad we are moving the debate here in the republican party. >> freedom, well, it's also about delegates, but santorum may be running out of opportunities to move the debate in this race. many of the big contests coming
the delegates in hand before tampa. >> the beginning of the end says mark halperin. michael steele, you once said that mitt romney, the brother just can't bake the cake. it looks like the oven may be hot enough for romney. let's look at the winner board. romney at 47% of the vote in illinois. rick santorum at 35%. ron paul at 9% is, gingrich at 8%. more staggering i guess is the delegate total romney at 485, santorum at 193, gingrich at 137, paul at 34. what do you make of it? >> i agree with park. he's clearly and always been kind of the guy to beat and been out there, but it doesn't mean you're not going to have tensions going into this convention that i still don't believe he'll have 1144 when he gets to tampa. he'll have to negotiate that. i don't see how he wins 50 plus percent of the delegates. he got 47 here in illinois, which was tailor-made for him. illinois's a state where he should have had 52, 53% of the vote in which case that -- when you hit that threshold, you get all the dels under the rules. if you're still winning the way he's winning, it's all proportional. tell me where y
, former presidential democratic candidate, and michael steele, former rnc chair. michael steele, you're further away. have i governor dean with me tonight. what do you think of romney's message last night? he is starting to stick to it obama. he is almost defending the moral basis of free market capitalism, which impressed a lot of conservatives. >> right. i thought he gave a whale of a speech. it was very strong. and it really started to delineate in many respect what's the upcoming campaign between him, should it be him as the nominee for the gop and the president will look like. and there was also those elements, you know, referring to him as the professor and things like that that sort of went to the base and said see? i'm ready to do this. i'm the guy. come on. let's get on board here. let's move this thing. so i think overall with a strong showing, a double-digit win, a strong closing, you know, remarks at the end of the evening put him in a good position to move forward. he still has to deal with of course his right flank where he had newt gingrich and rick santorum there. and
to romney after the results. florida, michael steele continues to contend that those rules are not fair, that they shouldn't have been winner take all. look, if he doesn't get to 1144, the way old credential committees and lawrence, i know i'm beginnigi giving you flashb it's going to be chaos. >> in a universe where there's the potential for this kind of shenanigans in dels, who benefits from that, the team with the best lawyers, the best back room operators? certainly the team that has both of those is going to be benefited over the other, but you know, it also is going to come down to who has the emotional connection if it came down to with the delegates at the detention. these candidates will have to get up and give a speech, the speech of their lives. all of the preplanned showbiz aspects of the convention where you're trying to drive a message, trying to connect with the american people will be totally out the window. it will be total chaos. it's anyone's guess what will happen. there's absolutely no modern precedent for it. >> chuck todd, steve schmidt and rachel maddow. thank yo
